question. >> all right. a lot of questions about nancy pelosi and whether she will continue on as your leader. will she or won't she? >> you know, i think that's probably the hottest question in the capitol right now. but personally if you ask me, i would be shocked if she left. you know, would really surprise me if she stepped aside. nancy pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big major decisions, the big issues. we wouldn't have health care reform without barack obama and nancy pelosi. and with the fiscal cliff issues and the big economic decisions we're going to be making it would be hard for me to imagine she walks away. plus, you know, we had a successful election and we've got a job to finish. so just knowing her, that's my gut feeling. >> did you guys have a successful election? because -- >> you mean in the house? >> yeah, obviously the president won big, the senate won big, but the republicans are still in charge of the house. >> yeah, they are. but, look, i think if you look at -- if this election were not right after redistricting, and if y
on this topic, they'll get plenty of help from our side. >> there's been talk about nancy pelosi and the speculation that she's going to step down as minority leader. have you heard anything about that and what are your thoughts about that? you're returning to work tomorrow. >> well, i got in trouble two years ago when i was asked that question because i really didn't at that time think that then speaker pelosi was going to want to be minority leader. if he wants to be minority leader, she will have that job as long as she wants it. she's been a tireless worker for the party. if she decides to step down, i think actually the leadership pieces will fall into place pretty quickly without contention in the democratic caucus and we'll have a very, very strong leadership contingent going forward in this congress. but right now, she hasn't laid her cards on the table. i assume we'll learn more later this week. >> i think that was a really good answer. i don't think you can get in trouble from that. you did a great job. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, thomas. >>> florid

the next year in the next 24 hours. will house minority leader nancy pelosi stay or go? pelosi has been coy about whether she plans to run for leader again. tonight she meets the top democrats. tomorrow morning another meeting with democratic leadership as she prepares for a meeting with the full democratic house caucus. will we know her plans by tomorrow night? smart money still says she probably doesn't run again, but two years ago that was where the smart money was, too. if she doesn't run, steny hoyer is as close to a shoo-in as you can get to replace her. there's just not the votes for somebody else to challenge steny hoyer but you never know. then there is defense secretary leon panetta. he was asked about his second term plans on the plane traveling to australia, and he told reporters, quote, it's no secret that at some point i would like 0 to get back to california. panetta is likely to stay in the post through the budget negotiations and possibly through the spring when they do the next round of budgets. so does that mean he's willing to stay in the pentagon for four more years? fo

don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit pollsters they agree with the president's position on tax policy. >> well, whether the president has a mandate is a matter of opinion. whether he has power is a matter of fact. this president now has enormous power, because of the expiring of all these various tax measures and because of the advent of the sequester. he's in a situation where he's in a doomsday contest with the republicans, but the doomsday bites republican constituencies harder than those of democrats and of course, the president doesn't have to face re-election so even if doomsday arrives he has less to fear from it than the republicans do. so he's in a very powerful position. and republicans are going to have to be very savvy about how they play this. to go back to your original question, about why -- what was the cause of the defeat, we'
this time around, those red states would send the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. we have a lot of hispanic people moving into the country, having a lot of kids and voting and being citizens, becoming part of the political process more than ever. and you have african-american voters, an african-american president, but there are other factors that have led them to the democratic party potentially. you see a lot of potential for the democratic party to grow. then when you add insult to injury, the other party says you were all bought, it seems to me that would just sort of fortify the democratic tendencies of the people we're talking about here. >> well, it's unclear what wing of the republican party mitt romney, you know, is going to be representing going forward, and i think that's one of the reasons you saw -- >> the mayor says he's out of business. i'm not s
